    Looking to see some support to get a set of Serpant Pillars that will let us get boats from tramel to fel in the normal open seas.

    Possibly a few locations, kinda like moongates (whirlpools) on the water.

    These of Course will have the similar rules for fleeing.

    Personally, I think that it has become necessary to travel between facets by boat. Not all fish can be found in one facet and unloading your boat to dry dock it and put it in another facet is not always an option, especially if you have your hold neatly organized.

    It would be nice to extend the use of serpent pillars. Keep the keywords, but instead of always sending to one location, you get a window that pops up, allowing you to select a facet. Tokuno is large enough to support a serpent pillar.

    If it means more nubs to kill in fel, I'm for it. :thumbup1:

    Whirlpools should trow you to random locations at any sea. :)

    I would like to see portals of some kind in all facets - that way we could sail to Lenmir in Ilshenar, and go between the other facets with larger bodies of water. Whirlpools would, of course, be the traditional means of travel.
     
  8. I doubt this is what would happen. The portal would just become another gank point, like Yew moongate. I think you would have the same people who "PvP" at Yew moongate now ganking at the sea portal, meaning less people at Yew moongate, and diluting the overall number who are at either spot.

    If the purpose is to get more people to voluntarily PvP, this is the wrong way. If the purpose is to allow sea access between facets, this is the wrong way.

    I voted yes, although I do not see the need of extra pillars. They could use the existing ones and just hand out a different set of passwords for traveling between Trammel and Felucca.

    How about YOUR PKED YOU FOOL! as the password? It'd be easy to remember because it'd be so descriptive of what happens when you use it at the pillar. :gee:
     
  12. LOL... Okay, that's what I was trying to say. :thumbup1:

    this was once the case a long time ago!, the words doracron would take you back n forth between fel and tram, sueacron would be used to go to and from the lost lands on whatever facet you were on, but it was the cause for major shard crashes, so they turned the feature off
